freak you is a 26-year old producer from the french riviera who runs his own wine restaurant but more importantly for us, also writes some of the best music i have heard this entire year. my beloved co-editor philip gave me the hint to check freak you out and sent me his selfmade rip of 'torn over' and damn, i was nothing but stunned and blown away. 'torn over' sounds like floating in outer space, the end of the world as in the apocalypse and the (first) love of your life all at once. but hear for yourself!

serge gainsbourg, pink floyd, led zeppelin, boards of canada and vitalic are some of freak you's rather eclectic influences and when you listen closely, you can hear a bit of all of them in his work.
besides 'torn away', there is also freak you's latest masterpiece called 'from nowhere', maintaining a similar vibe as 'torn over' but all in all seeming a bit more eerie, further out of space. and as good artists always seem to find a way to each other, worship (who was just featured on discodust two weeks ago) made a great uplifting remix of 'from nowhere' that is of course up for grabs on here as well.

watch out for more from freak you, his releases on french label on the fruit and don't forget worship either!
